David Graham and Sophie Tilitz are farmers, educators, and artists in Massachusetts. Their art is inspired by the scenes of animals, children, and nature at The Farm School where they work. David creates mixed media two-dimensional work, and carves objects in wood found on the land. Sophie makes clothing, embroidery, and other fiber arts. She enjoys creating custom pieces to fit the needs and style of her fellow farmers and friends. Her recent work uses fabric printed with David's designs.
